Default Would these work on a 18-55mm NIKKOR


Can someone please help me out with this. I need to know if i can achieve moderate-good results with this kit (or any one of the lenses herein).

I would avoid these at all costs. 4 macro filters for $7USD means that they are cheaply made and will ruin your image quality.

You obviously know that you will not obtain excellent results, based on your question. These are almost certainly uncoated plastic lenses which can be easily scratched, and difficult to clean without scratching. Given that, you may be able to obtain adequate results. Be sure to pay attention to how these items thread onto your lens - getting one crossthreaded and stuck could be a problem.
